The Health Foundation is an independent charitable foundation committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK. Through giving grants to those working at the front line, to carrying out research and policy analysis, we shine a light on how to make successful change happen that is improving health and health care for the UK population.
At the Health Foundation, we believe that every person in the UK should have the opportunity for a healthy life and access to the same standard of health care, irrespective of their background. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our national health and care services. It has also further highlighted the impact health inequalities in the UK – as the pandemic has affected some groups of people much more than others.
Our Board is now looking for two exceptional Governors who share our goal of better health and health care for people in the UK and wish to provide insight and challenge towards the strategic direction of the Foundation.
We are looking for committed and passionate people to join our Board who bring direct experience in either of the following:
- Leadership in an organisation exposed to health inequity, with knowledge or appreciation of health inequity, either through lived experience or through the experience of others
- Seniority in the investment world with experience dealing across multiple asset classes and market cycles
We have a wealth of health and health care experience on our Board currently and are therefore looking for individuals who bring transferable skills and experiences from broader industry backgrounds. Our Governors are highly engaged in our work and we are looking for individuals who bring high level challenge and diversity of thought to our Board.
This is a particularly rewarding time to join our Board, during one of the most challenging periods our health care system has faced. Your contribution will help shape the future of health across the nation.
